How can Budgeting Works help grow your business?
Promoting the Budgeting Works offering to your new clients and existing database is mutually beneficial to both you and your clients. How?
Budgeting Works reports can be used as a useful tool to monitor client spending and saving over the period and provide valuable information for discussion with clients when performing your annual reviews.

The main qualification criteria for entry into the real estate market is the provision of finance to fund the acquisition. A prerequisite for finance approval, particularly for first home buyers, is the provision of a deposit and evidence of genuine savings.

Assisting clients to save for a deposit in a structured way, and much sooner.
Supporting the timely payment of loan repayments.
Providing opportunities for clients that have been declined for finance – setting a savings plan to keep them ‘in the loop’ and therefore improving return on investment on client acquisition costs for brokers, bankers, builders and developers.
